has paid much attention. but unless nothing is done before january 1st, we are going to see taxes rise on most people because that's the end of the payroll tax cut that president obama and congress agreed to. that also means that the end of the bush tax cuts, not only for people over $250,000 of income, but also everybody else who were to some extent, their taxes were also reduced by the bush tax cut. the alternative minimum tax, that also would kick in. there's no alternative to the alternative minimum tax on the table. so you have the typical family after january 1st seeing a tax hike in the range of $1500 to $3500 for the year 2013. now, i expect congress is going to do something, if it doesn't act before january 1st, it's probably going to act sometime in january and then make what they do retroactive to january 1st. >> all right. looking at the long-term and the short-term. we're going to know what those jobs numbers are tomorrow. great to see you, as always. thank you. >> thanks, thomas. >> so just to point out again, we are awaiting for live remarks from the president as he dise

to nothiprognosticati melber, neera tanden, kate ton dawson. let's start with the tax plan. if there is something i believe mitt romney is invested in doing, it is the tax plan. he claims it is revenue neutral. >> you have to claim certain things. this goes for both sides. there is this thing called business cycle. this is what we study. in a free market economy, recessions and recoveries, upswings and down swings are part and parcel of the world we live in. when you look at how budgets are proposed, off of the congressional budget office projection. they are not that realistic. in 2014, 2015, 2016, they are projected real gdp growth of 4.4%. sounds pretty good. how realistic is it? if you take a look at reality, what's happened since the beginning of the century? gdp has grown at 1.7% and we know we are in a pretty sluggish economy. there is a huge disconnect between what's proposed and what's going on outside this window? >> that's the big deal. the claim is, i'm going to go in and cut taxes. don't worry, cutting taxes is going to be stimulative. we are going to end up with way more jobs and ther

the largest budget surplus ever in history. it's going to make it possible tor us to cut taxes for every hoosier. but jon, you just said we pay for things in indiana. but when you were speaker of the house, for five of the six years you were running the state house, indiana ran deficits. when mitch daniels came into power indiana was $700 million in debt and had a deficit of $820 million. facts are stubborn things and i'd like to knoll how are we going to make sure and preserve the fiscal integrity of the state of indiana. >> if you had spent the last 12 years here you'd know our budget has to be balanced. i produce balanced budget t and they were supported by our own lieutenant governor. i find it laughable that a united states congressman would lecture anybody about fiscal responsibility. you voted five times, congressman, you you voted and the results increased our deficit by $200 billion with a b dollars. >> find key house and governor races on c-span campaign 2012. >> an update on hurricane sandy coming up at about 2:30 eastern which up until then with an election a few days away a

was that he favors a progressive tax policy, taxing those at the very highest rungs of income a little more to provide a little more help to those on the bottom rungs. "the des moines register" has now abandoned that as a reason for choosing a president. the editorial board has abandoned it in favor of this lie. there is not a lot of difference between the two candidates' short-term economic plans. four years ago, one of the biggest reasons "the des moines register" gave for endorsing president obama was expanding health insurance coverage to more americans will lessen the threat that illness will bring financial ruin. four years later, health insurance is not mentioned in their editorial endorsing the man who promises to repeal the obama expansion of health insurance that "the des moines register" advocated. another important reason cited four years ago in endorsing president obama was the supremely important reason of supreme court justices. obama promises to appoint justices with an expansive view of constitutional rights and equal justice. mccain's appointments more likely would continu
federal taxes to accommodate that cut. the states would then have to raise taxes in order to pay for the replacements for what fema used to do. taxation on the average homeowner or individual -- >> cut taxes so the localities have to raise taxes. >> that's right. >> any way the tax is going to go down. the other scenario, say the states try to replicate what fema does, that's extremely inefficient because what fema can do is keep a lot of resources in place to target wherever the disaster goes. if every state has to act like sandy is going to hit them every time. >> right. >> that's fantastically inefficient and someone like romney ought to know that of all people. >> a lot is give money to states. there's a level of the game here. >> that is what they do. the big obviously the cops and e ems and firefighters are out there, not federal employees for the most part. >> that's right. >> and those are local workers who like are out there, you know, doing the work first. >> ezra, we know if the sequesters go into place, fema loses $878 million, that's a lot of money although we don't
of taxes. everybody's been talking about these swing states as if the tail can wag the dog. somehow if you win the swing states, you affect the whole rest of the country in doing so, when that's the residue. but if you spend all your advertising money and all your grassroots, all your social media, and you focus it all on ohio, that doesn't help you win in pennsylvania. it doesn't help you in minnesota or michigan. i'm wondering whether they got the thing wrong, possibly, the obama people, by putting all their faith in winning those seven states, or most of them. what do you think? >> i think that because of the electoral college, elections, presidential elections have to focus on swing states and have to focus on these emerging purple states, because as it turns out, the elections sometimes do hinge on them. this election does seem to hinge on these particular swing states. the reason why the polling is so confusing, chris, is because sometimes national polls don't take into effect the fact that we have an electoral college, don't take into effect that some of these swing states will be s
budget and tax plan. he's refused to say if he supports the lily ledbetter fair pay act for women. he's refused to say if he would enter one-on-one nuclear talks with the iranians. he's refused to answer questions relating to richard mourdock's rape comment. and finally, mitt romney has actually refused to go on nickelodeon and answer questions from children. now, if mitt romney can't answer questions from 5-year-old kids, how do you think that's going to play with the national press corps? and isn't it interesting that fox news can't even get an interview with mitt romney right now? for more, let's turn to congresswoman debbie wasserman schultz of florida. she's a chairwoman of the democratic national committee. chairwoman, good to have you with us tonight. it's a very strange strategy, being played out by mitt romney. what do you make of it? >> well, i think what this boils down to is a matter of who do you trust? i mean, we know that there is a very stark contrast and a clear choice in terms of the two directions that we could go. but, i mean, time and again now, we have examples o
of the uncertainty. tax policy, if you talk to any tax expert, really what you need are not temporary tax cuts, because no investor, no businessperson makes decisions based on the next few months, but you need a permanency and certainty. >> we will have certainty no matter what, though, right? when we get through the election, hopefully we have an answer to the fiscal cliff no matter what happens. >> i've actually full confidence if mitt romney gets elected and what i can't understand is anybody who thinks that the president, who said no to bowles-simpson, did nothing vis-a-vis the fiscal cliff, asked for a clean bill attached to the debt ceiling, how anybody thinks he can show some leadership and get that done when he's had four years to do it, i don't understand the logic. >> and he was the man that actually authorized and pushes bowles-simpson and then did nothing with it. >> you don't see romney embracing bowles-simpson at the moment either? >> i don't think he's embracing that but i think something similar to bowles-simpson. >> we'll talk more about this. julian and emil will be with us f
, we've also got to ask the wealthiest americans to go back to tax rates they paid when bill clinton was in office because, as long as i'm president, i will never turn medicare into a voucher to pay for another millionaire's tax cuts. i will never allow the nation to be plunged into another battle over health care reform just so insurance companies can jump back into the driver's seat. and i will never allow politicians in washington to control health care choices that women should be making for themselves. so, wisconsin, we know what change is. we know what the future requires. we don't need a big government agenda or a small government agenda. we need a middle class agenda that rewards hard work and responsibility. we don't need a partisan agenda. we need a common sense agenda that says, when we educate a poor child, we'll a. be better off we need a vision that says we don't just look out for yourself. we look out for one another. we look out for future generations. and we meet those obligations by working together. that's the change we believe in. that's what this election's all.
the de jour, reconvenes a week later, bush tax cuts expire december 31st, the viled sequester kicks in on january 2nd, the debt ceiling wit need to be raised in mid-february and the current funding expires march 27th. bipartisan will certainly need be needed but -- certainly be needed but when will it come? >> romney is more of a flexible flopper than obama he has more influence over the intraj gent element in the ecase house republicans. he's likely to get big stuff down. or to paraphrase mitt's tiger blood will enable him to be more bipartisan because he doesn't believe in anything but winning. joining the panel, authors of the book "it's even worse than it looks" a great read and an important read, senior fellow at the brookings institution, thomas man and norman onstein a collar at the american enterprise institute. always a pleasure to have you on the show. >> great to be back, alex. >> thomas or actually norm, why don't we start with you on this. in terms of the david brooks endorsement or making the case for a mitt romney being the guy to get stuff done, how likely do you thi

, obama's first term delivered an ambitious domestic agenda, with tax, spending, health care, and several rights policies that benefited black americans more than recent administrations in either party. just usually without making a sound. >> uh-huh. >> now, the narrative that i've been hearing for some time is that this president has been silent on the issues of race, and actually has not been helpful to african-americans. you say the exact opposite. >> it is a narrative that's out there and there are some very respected voices in african-american sbel chul circles who have raised that which part of what i was doing is making that argument and looking at the policy. we were speaking about this before just coming on air. if you look, for example, at the people in the lowest fifth of income in this country, barack obama's tax policies and stimulative policies have cut their taxes more than any other administration in 30 years. and if you then look at that in the context of african-american communities for a range of reasons are more -- >> the lower fifth. >> -- moreover represented in that
